Countering Iran’s Hostile Activities — [Gordon Henderson in the Chair] ( 8 May 2024)

Chris Law: We have all laid out clearly the escalation that has been supported by Israel over the past seven or eight months, particularly around the middle eastern conflict.

Countering Iran’s Hostile Activities — [Gordon Henderson in the Chair] ( 8 May 2024)

Chris Law: Thank you for giving us time so that we could all vote, Mr Henderson. As we are discussing Iran, I will turn to regional escalation.

Prime Minister: Engagements ( 8 May 2024)

Chris Law: It is more than a month since the parliamentary ombudsman delivered the long-awaited report on pension injustices, but women born in the 1950s in my constituency, and indeed in every constituency across these islands, are still waiting to hear whether the UK Government will listen to its recommendations and deliver compensation. I was proud to see the Scottish Parliament support a motion last...

Israel and Gaza (26 Mar 2024)

Chris Law: It is clear to many international partners that the UK Government must now accept that Israel is potentially committing war crimes and genocide.
